Who makes all the dumb decisions?

Having been out of the loop for hundreds of years, clearly I have some catching up to do. I am struggling however to fathom out exactly how civilisation (if you can call it that) has evolved into a world of bleeding heart lapdogs.

How on earth can it be right that some low life can break into your house in order to rob you, and yet if he trips over your loose carpeting or a rug you can be sued for his injuries and actually have to pay the scum compensation……………. why is that? Who thought that would be a good idea? Who voted for it?

How can we have reached a point in time when the only way the police have to reduce serious crime is to solve far more minor crimes, thus lowering the percentage of bad stuff? By counting all the speeding fines, failure to wear a seat belt, using a mobile whilst driving etc ( you know, all the serious crimes) it has the effect of making the rising crime wave of assaults, rapes and murders look less significant. Is the public that stupid to believe this number massaging?

While we are on the subject of Government number crunching…….. is your inflation rate 3% like mine apparently is? How in hell do they expect us to believe them? The basket of goods from which the inflation rate is taken used to include staple items and goods 15-20 years ago, but today it includes everyday purchases such as jeans, flat screen tvs, etc…. all incidentally, items that have reduced in price in recent years.

Meanwhile while this is going on fuel prices have risen by over 40% in 6 months, food prices are doing likewise and all at a time when the only source of financial stability the family home is teetering on the brink of a potential value collapse. The true inflation rate is currently off the charts as it has been towards the end of each and every Labour government we have ever had. The great thing is Brown continues to fiddle while we all burn…… he will tell us we’ve never had it so good next.

    You can blame the Americans, not Brown for this inflation. If the US hadn’t invaded Iraq, oil would still be in the $20 to $30 a barrel range, not heading for ten times that. Food price inflation also began when the US introduced tax breaks for biofuels. Daft thing is, biofuels actually use more energy, not less (in most cases) and we would need something like four planet earths exporting their entire agricultural production (and doing nothing else either) just to replace current oil use. What we’d eat, heaven knows.

    As usual, the US are in denial they are the cause of the problem, and are just trying to “negotiate” ways around it. Sounds like Canute and the tide to me.
